Atherton Tablelands Birdwatchers’ Cabin

We are still busy,  moving to our new property south of Atherton, but here is a first impression of our birdlife there.  Erica and Mike, keen birders from the US, stayed with us in December, and took this footage:

It was very dry then, but since the beginning of the year, we’ve had more than 600mm of long-awaited rain. It brought out many frogs, including these Orange-thighed Treefrogs (Litoria xanthomera):

and it didn’t take long at all:

    Hi, I’m Jeff Lin from Taiwan,remember?
    This new cabin is definitely a great place to stay, and you said you are busy moving to this new cabin. Does it mean you will run the cabin in Kuranda no more?
